In a near future, an alien race has hit the Earth in an unbeatable assault. Major William Cage has never seen a day of combat, but is dropped into a suicide mission and killed within minutes. Cage now finds himself thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same day over and over, fighting and dying each time.

I loved every minute of it!

People who didn't give this movie 5 stars truly did not understand it. This has got to be one of the best sci-fi/mystery/fantasy movies that has come out in a long time. If you dig and love sci-fil this movie is must see! This was a very smart film with an unexpected plot! Enjoy

I would describe exactly as Tenet did, Ground Hog Day and Aliens combined. Got to be too predictable.

Rated 6/10. Imagine Groundhog Day meets Aliens, and you've got this movie. The special effects and action part of the show was good, but plot-wise, nothing spectacular.

I can't understand why the VPL didn't list Brian Cox as an additional contributor, he played an important role as the general in this movie. This big budget romp was concocted to a borrowed formula:
1/3 Groundhog Day
1/3 Starship Troopers
1/3 Minority Report
Most of the movie's droll humor comes from the smart mouth of Bill Paxton who plays the hard-ass master sergeant. Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt give creditable performances with their mix of acrobatic skill and body chemistry; a duo who defy the odds and carry the day. The premise of this movie violates the 2nd law of thermodynamics, but this was not a movie intended for an audience of physicists, as the plot unwinds you have to suspend disbelief and cut it a little slack.

Tom Cruise delivers another winning performance in this futuristic action flick. Scenes include humor. Emily Blunt was excellent in her role as an accomplished, tough, alien-fighting warrior.

You would think that a movie with the premise of a guy fighting an alien invasion while forced to live the same day over and over would make for a B movie at best. You would be wrong. This is a really well done action science fiction flick. I can't think of a single person I know who has seen it that didn't enjoy it. In a time where there aren't many 'fun' movies made that aren't built on superhero franchises, this was a solid popcorn movie.

Set in the future, an attack by a seemingly invincible alien race elicits the need for something powerful enough to beat the aliens. However, William Cage (Tom Cruise) is sent to battle for the first time… and dies just moments after entering the battle. But the catch is that every time Cage dies, he comes back to life at a point in the near past, almost like a checkpoint. It’s almost like playing a video game on a level you just can’t seem to beat. Each time you play it, you seem to have a newer, better strategy to tackle the level with. Likewise, Cage gains a better understanding of the aliens and perhaps how to defeat them each time he enters the battlefield and dies. Overall, it was a very interesting watch with a good chunk of action and a very good plot.
Rating: 4/5

Tons more in IMDb:

Lt. Col. Bill Cage: Master Sergeant Farell, you're an American.
Master Sergeant Farell: *No,* sir. I'm from *Kentucky.*

Master Sergeant Farell: Battle is the Great Redeemer. It is the fiery crucible in which true heroes are forged. The one place where all men truly share the same rank, regardless of what kind of parasitic scum they were going in.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: If you suffer from PTSD then the first battle scene may set off some flashbacks or anxiety. It's graphic and tense. Not a reason not to watch it, just fair warning that it might be unsettling for some.
